More Quick Hits: Successful Strategies by Award-Winning Teachers.
Stocking, S. Holly, Ed.; Bender, Eileen T., Ed.; Cookman, Claude H., Ed.; Peterson, J. Vincent, Ed.; Votaw, Robert B., Ed.
This book, a sequel to "Quick Hits," offers simple but successful strategies that award-winning teachers from Indiana University (IU) have found, through experience, to help promote learning in college classes. The original book grew out of the annual retreats of the Faculty Colloquium on Excellence in Teaching (FACET), an organization established to recognize and support distinguished teaching faculty from each of IU's eight campuses. This sequel extends the original volume's reach to include the successful strategies of teachers outside the FACET network. The book includes nine chapters as follows: (1) "Designing Courses and Environments for Learning," (2) "Creating Learning Communities," (3) "Fostering Critical and Creative Thinking," (4) "Helping Students Direct Their Own Learning," (5) "Service and Learning," (6) "Technology and Learning," (7) "Using Assessment and Evaluation for Learning," (8) "Learning To Teach and Teaching To Learn," and (9) "Quick List: Recommended Books on Teaching." An index of contributors and an index of subjects are included. "Quick Wits" words and pictures, designed to encourage and amuse, are placed throughout the book. (SM)
